  • Place all ingredients into a Vitamix (or other high-powered blender) in the order listed.
  • Blend on high for 30 seconds, or until smooth and mixture is homogenous.
  • Turn on your ice cream maker.
  • Pour mixture directly from the Vitamix into the ice cream maker while it is moving.
  • Let the ice cream churn for about 20-25 minutes until it becomes a firm ball or the ice cream maker stops rotating.
  • Transfer to an airtight, freezer-friendly container and freeze for at least 1 hour, or until completely frozen.
  • Makes about 1 pint of ice cream.


Many people ask me if they can make ice cream without an ice cream maker. The answer is yes, you can churn it by hand but I highly recommend investing in an ice cream maker if you want the creamiest, dreamiest, homemade ice cream possible.
